Simple weld geometry question

In the question they say a "1/2 by 2 in rectangular cross section". Does this mean the dimension of 1/2 is actually into the page and not as shown in the diagram?

Also, In the solution there is mention of "the base metal adjacent to the weld" and "shank of the attachment". What areas are these referring to?

thanks

Yes, that would be my interpretation.

does the force F cause shear in the welds?

You could draw a free body diagram and see.

The "shank of the attachment" is the piece of metal which has the 2"x1/2" cross section and is welded to the piece at left.

The "base area adjacent to the weld" is somewhat vague. It could mean the area of the gusset plate directly beneath the fillet welds.
